I rooted using ioroot, flashed twrp with freegee. Just curious if I factory wipe will I lose root?
Also, is it best to factory reset from the settings menu or through twrp?

I'm used to running cwm on a gnex, so this is a whole new set or rules to learn...
Thanks!

Yesterday I was factory-reseting my D802 with Volume Down + Power buttons. After that it was still rooted. I suppose the same would be on D803 too. I don't know about custom recovery though, as I used stock one.

You will keep root after a factory reset.

I always factory reset in my recovery app. Simply custom wipe data and cache. Then wipe dalvik cache.
If you want to flash a new ROM, just custom wipe system, data and cache. Then wipe dalvik cache.
